July 27th - Danielle Todd
She mines the air in public spaces for simple lines and turns of phrases that she can turn into a song
For Danielle Todd, inspiration comes from her own experiences and observations. She mines the air in public spaces for simple lines and turns of phrases that she can turn into a song. Her connection to and interactions with those around her in every day life are the raw materials she uses to forge poignant and powerful lyrics and music. ”I listen to a lot of conversations and if I hear something, I’ll write it down,” says Danielle. “People are poetic and they don’t even know it. They’ll say things and I’ll say oh that’s brilliant and I’ll write a song about it and hope they don’t realize they wrote it.”
Her fluency on guitar and piano and her vocal versatility, strength and control makes her a popular choice for vocal groups but she has her own trail to blaze.
She easily slips from a pop or new country sound associated with the likes of Jewel or Colbie Caillat to compositions of cathartic introspection typical of artists like Adele or Chantal Kreviazuk, all the while maintaining a distinctive personal style all her own.
